The “pro and con” format of the debates is designed to provide attendees with practical clinical insights into treatment and present a nuanced view of the scope of current thinking on these topics.
Faculty will also discuss the role of genomic analysis in the management of patients with gynecologic cancers and highlight several promising novel chemotherapeutics and targeted agents for gynecologic malignancies currently undergoing clinical trial evaluation.
